I currently have no 'unicorn'-ideas. Applying doesn't seem useful at this moment. Is there a list of startups that need help? If so, why did they get funded when the team isn't right yet?

Ideas do not start out as unicorn ideas. They start small and morph into something bigger.

I wonder if the AirBnB team thought they were a unicorn when they started? Likely not.

i would think not, considering there were already others operating in the exact same space... they were probably just hoping for at least a small piece of the pie.
